Library celebrates 100th anniversary
>https://www.anacorteswa.gov/220/Library The public library my generation knew is gone, but that is good news. It is, in fact, the “old” library — and more. This month the library features a series of centennial events. My recommendation is an on-site visit, but in addition to that, I urge you to click on the link at the top of this blog entry to “visit” online. This site offers an impressive menu of resources including links to other useful internet sources.
A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
